A police investigation confirmed the involvement of North Korean hackers in the recent attacks on the South Korea's crypto exchange, but they were not able to steal money. This is written by The Japan Times.
Security company FireEye reported on the fact that since May hackers from North Korea made several attempts to steal funds from South Korean exchanges. It is alleged that in recent months, at least three attempts have been made at phishing attacks on South Korean exchanges.
The findings of FireEye confirmed by the police of South Korea: according to it, between July and August, several dozen employees of four exchanges whose names were not disclosed, were sent emails containing malicious code. Hackers were allegedly speaking on behalf of representatives of government agencies responsible for security issues, and letters were sent from the same IP addresses that were previously associated with North Korea's attacks on government organizations in Seoul.
It is noted that none of the computers was compromised and the funds were not stolen
